This is an example of how NOT to build a cabin! It’s the worst tiny cabin that Derek Diedricksen has ever encountered and stayed at.

You can see a few shots of just how bad it is below and you can watch the entire video with Deek to learn about all of the terrible design and construction mistakes in this cabin, and how it is for sure going to collapse into the ground because of the way water is running into it. Yikes. Can you believe there are places out there like this for rent?

Meet Sarah McClellan (daughter of Cob/Earth/Mud builder “Uncle Mud“) as she takes us through her self-built funky, unconventional, fun, and ultra-affordable home- one built IN and around seven trees.1

This is the story of Chris Strathy’s horse trailer tiny house project brought to you thanks to Deek over at RelaxShacks.com and his YouTube Channel.

You can also find Chris (aka the Capable Carpenter) over at The Capable Carpenter. Anyway, he bought this trailer for only $1,000 and spent approximately $10 on materials to turn it into a micro cabin on wheels. Pretty amazing, right? By the way, he’s in the process of building a little village of tiny homes.

This is the story of a couple who are living full-time in a 50-square-foot micro home via Deek’s relaxshacksDOTcom YouTube Channel.

Meet Dan and Emily Hutcheson Moore- who after taking a few hands-on tiny house workshops, and gaining inspiration from several tiny house festivals, decided to take the plunge and live tiny full time- in a cabin-like vargo only 50 square feet in size at its base. This self-built home on wheels certainly is small, but does contain their needs and facilities for just about any occasion- from showering, to napping, going to the bathroom, and cooking.

This is the story of Richard Ward’s new 54 sq. ft. tiny house on wheels that ‘expands’ to 120 sq. ft.!

It’s called the Terraform 3 and surprisingly, it has everything he needs to live full time while traveling around the United States. Richard’s goal was to build a tiny house that was easy to get around with.

By the way, he originally lived in a 250 sq. ft. tiny house but decided that was too big so he sold it and downsized into this 54 sq. ft. tiny!

Please enjoy the full tour, learn more, and re-share below. Thanks!

This is the story of a 13-year-old who built his own tiny cabin for only $1500!

Meet Luke Thill, who at age twelve started working on his very own tiny house- one a mere 5′ by 10′, but with a sleep loft, transforming dining table, and even a small kitchenette. At age thirteen, using money from summer lawn-mowing jobs, and bartering (electrical wiring help in exchange for cleaning out a garage in one case), Iowa’s Thill completed his tiny house- one that he calls the practice precursor to a future “real” tiny house he plans on designing and eventually living in.2

Talk about patience! This man built a home using 7,500 glass bottles — and you can rent it.

Called the “Bungalow in the Boulders,” the house sits near Joshua Tree and boy is it stunning. Be sure to watch the video with Deek from Relaxshacks.com after checking out the pictures, because the builder explains the painstaking process he used to cut, glue and mortar the walls of this rustic-glam vacation home. Rent it here!

Enjoy!
